Species name: Channa pulchra, burmese snakehead

size around 10 inch.

location: Irrawaddy and Sitang River basins Myanmar

temprement: is a fairley aggresive snakehead but not over the top.

parameters: Temperature 18-25 c ; pH avoid extreams,slighly softer water , although these guys can stand higher levels oftemp for periods of time they sould not be kept year round at theesetemps. there behavior is directly affected by tempreture and high temp does not seem to be good for them at all..

setup: even though classed as a dwaft channa there size is not a small fish also so take that into consideration when your setting up your tank. a well structed tank is good for this fish and with most snakeheads a planted tank with cover is the best.

breeding: start out with small group , grow them up together ,at some point aggresion levels will rise dramaticly and you shouldnotice two of the fish pairing off together. there eggs saty afloat on the top of the water.and somefeeder eggs have been whitnessed.

channa Ornatipinnis

size: approx 10 inch

temp: another sub tropical species here

temprement: aggresive snakehead

location: Irrawaddy and Sitang River basins Myanmar


Company: best kept in a species tank , do not mix with tropicals as these are sub-tropical fish and will not fair well

setup- a well structured tank will be best for these as they do not like eachother very much so if your going to keep groups of 4 or more youl need a pritty bug tank.

prices: these fish a few year back were going 150 each now a more normal price will be about £20

i have orderd 2 of these channa to hopefully arrive on tue or wed.
